KENNETH WESTHUES

University of Waterloo, Canada

Updated with quotes for March 2019:

Classic:
It is a good morning exercise for a research scientist to discard a pet hypothesis every day before breakfast. It keeps him young.
— Konrad Lorenz, Das Sogennante Böse, 1963.

 

Direct:
To be a social scientist is to work at learning, preserving, revising, formulating, and communicating general ideas that square with some observable, distinctly human reality.
Basic Principles for Social Science in Our Time, 1987.

Garden moment for March 2019:

Fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus) is one of the earliest and loveliest of spring-flowering trees. Native to southeastern United States, it grows well also in Southern Ontario.
